Kathleen Turner has revealed the names of three top Hollywood stars who had a bet on who could bed her first

In her candid chat with Vulture this week, she admits Michael Douglas once told her he had a competition with Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty over who would be first to sleep with her.

But the Romancing The Stone star says she rebuffed all of the screen legends advances, adding: “I don’t like being thought of as a trophy.”

Turner, who starred with Douglas in the 1985 movie Jewel of the Nile, said: “You have to remember that my first big role was Body Heat and after that I was a sexual target.

“I understood later, from Michael Douglas, that there was a competition between him, Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty about who would get me first. None of them did, by the by.”

She told one story in which a group went back to Nicholson’s house, and knowing Beatty was interested in her, told her to “call Warren and tell him I don’t have a corkscrew”.

When Turner, who was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in her 30s, asked why, he replied: “You’ll see how fast he gets here.”

On another occasion, Turner say she was at a dinner party and sat in an empty chair beside Nicholson where they chatted for a while before she left for the night.

She said she got back to her hotel and received a phone call from him demanding to know why she left because she was his “date”.

Turner said: “There was an unspoken assumption that women were property to be claimed.”

She added that was the reason she never moved to Los Angeles, admitting the California city makes her “feel insecure”.

But it wasn’t just the male stars that came under fire in the interview – Turner also took aim at British screen legend Elizabeth Taylor, who died in 2011 aged 79.

She described the Cleopatra actress’s voice as “awful” and “badly used” and criticised her performance in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? saying: “I don’t think she was very skilled.”

Turner also described Nicolas Cage as “difficult on set” during their time working together on the 1986 movie Peggy Sue Got Married.

She also said that working with Burt Reynolds in 1988 was “terrible” and his actions on set made her cry.

The star said: “His behaviour was shocking. It never occurred to me that I wasn’t someone’s equal. I left the room sobbing.”

Turner also revealed she once slapped a male co-star in a theatre production who had bitten her, but wouldn’t say who.

Even the stars of hit US sitcom Friends, in which she played Chandler’s drag queen dad, weren’t safe as she branded them a “clique”.

She said she “didn’t feel very welcomed by the cast”, which included Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc.

As for an occasion where she met the now US President in the 1980s, Turner says Donald Trump has  “gross” handshake.

She elaborated: “He goes to shake your hand and with his index finger kind of rubs the inside of your wrist. He’s trying to do some kind of seductive intimacy move. You pull your hand away and go yuck.”

Turner also sparked an internet frenzy when she accused a “very famous Hollywood actress” of playing “the same role for 20 years” – but refused to give the name.

Fans have been left speculating over the identity of the woman since the article was published on Tuesday.

The Sun Online has contacted representatives for Michael Douglas, 73, Warren Beatty, 81, and Jack Nicholson, 81.
